This year’s game, which is the inaugural edition, will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 22 at the Sardis Sports Complex in Chilliwack.

In addition to being second in goals on the Panthers with eight, Mathieson is also second in scoring with 15 points in 18 games. He is an alternate captain for Port Moody this season and second on the team in power play points with five.
